More About Bridget

Inspired by nature, Bridget is passionate about our environment and feels an intimate connection to the landscape and wildlife of Canada.  She has worked in textile arts for over 25 years and is drawn to fiber for the tactile nature and connection to the land it has.  She uses combinations of local, recycled content, organic thread and materials, botanical dyes and sustainably managed, local wood in every original work.
